UC Davis is committed to the safety and well-being of our community. We have a dedicated team working to inform our campus response, and we are working closely with the local public health department and the University of California Office of the President.
Plans for Fall Quarter 2020
On June 16, the campus announced plans to welcome students back to campus for the fall quarter. See the announcement.
The Davis campus is moving from "suspended operations" to "reduced operations" in a gradual reopening.
Face Coverings Required
An order of the Yolo County public health authority continues the requirement for wearing a face covering by most everyone in most circumstances when they are outside the home, including at work. Face coverings are available for UC Davis employees who continue to work on campus and do not have suitable coverings of their own.
Reporting positive tests for COVID-19
The campus reviews and verifies COVID-19 confirmed cases. Use the reporting process when you have received a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis based on your own positive test result or the test result of someone with whom you share a residence — this is mandatory — or you have concerns about a member of the campus community having COVID-19.
Information about the campus response to the pandemic is highlighted in weekly updates from the Chancellor, Dateline and posts to the campus News and Information Page. This Coronavirus website provides access to detailed information and other resources.
